Orphans belong to the most vulnerable group of our society especially from deprived and economically disadvantaged areas of Pakistan. A huge number of orphans: 4.2 million to be exact dwell in our country and more than half of them are deprived of their basic rights. Imagine the plight of so many little souls without the loving attention of a mother or the protective care of a father and sometimes both.
Alkhidmat Foundation Women Wing Trust has developed a well-connected network that helps to reach such vulnerable orphans before they get trapped by any non-human factor of the society. Our volunteers’ network remains active throughout the year for the noble cause of finding and securing children with no family support.
The purpose of Orphan Support Program is to provide support to the children who lost either one or both of their parents –and hence also lost a vital source of support– at their own homes. Currently the Orphan Care Program is successfully run in all provinces of Pakistan as well as Azad Jammu Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan and FATA. Each cluster is administrated by an in-charge who, along with local community looks after the needs of the children.
Aghosh Alkhidmat works for such orphans who lose their parents or paternal support in the first 14 years of their life. Aghosh works with the objectives of providing a better educational environment and residential facilities for free to the vulnerable orphan children in Pakistan. It also equips them with the highest degree of self-confidence through mentoring and counseling by professionals. This vests a solid determination in their selves to attain the best future for them and serve the beloved country.
In order to rehabilitate the vulnerable orphans and to transform them onto productive citizens, Alkhidmat Foundation Women Wing Trust has 12 orphanages across the country.
11 Agosh Homes are operational in the country that includes one dedicated center at Bani Gal (Islamabad) for girls. One more Agosh Home for girls is being constructed at Sheikhpura (Punjab). Alkhidmat Foundation Women Wing Trust has built an aghosh home in Turkey at Gaziantep.
“Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).” (Muslim Vol. 4, Hadith 6264)
